Georgia South Family Medicine Residency at Colquitt Regional Medical Center is located in Moultrie, Georgia. Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), Georgia South has built a program that adheres to both accrediting entities and plans on incorporating Osteopathic Recognition in the near future. The program offers a unique opportunity for residents to train in an unopposed program working side-by-side with practicing physicians in the area, designing a hands-on experience for each resident.
Founded in 1939, Colquitt Regional Medical Center is a 99-bed community-based teaching hospital located in the heart of Southwest Georgia. At our core, we exist to provide high-quality and compassionate healthcare to all who enter our doors. Home to over 1,350 employees, Colquitt Regional affords access to advanced medical services with more than 95 providers bringing expertise in 20+ specialties.
We hold patient safety as a top priority and have demonstrated our commitment to patient-centered care through various national accreditations and certifications such as: The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for our joint replacement program, certification as a Comprehensive Center for bariatric surgery under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®), and recognition from The Leapfrog Group for receiving 12 consecutive "A" hospital safety ratings.
Knowing that innovation is integral for future success, we continue to implement technologies to stay at the cutting edge, such as the 128-slice CT scanner, 3T MRI, da Vinci Minimally Invasive Surgery System, 3D/4D mammography, and SAVI SCOUT®. Our most recent additions and expansions include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation, inpatient dialysis, a premier oncology center, and a state-of-the-art women's health facility.
We pride ourselves on providing exceptional care by exceptional people and strive to make the difference in turning stressful medical situations into remarkable healthcare experiences for patients and loved ones.
We are a diverse community of learners committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive primary care to the rural and underserved communities of South Georgia through a training program for residents and students that aims to be both rigorous and personally fulfilling.
Our main goal is to train physicians in the full breadth of primary care to serve rural communities in Georgia; yet feel confident that our graduates have both the clinical acumen as well as the independent learning skills to provide basic health care for all people anywhere in the country or around the world.
Central to our program is the incorporation of individuality to each residents training. We have developed a strong, unified didactic experience as well as a unique learning experience beyond the basic required rotations.
Residents and faculty will have community exposure through experiences with rural health centers, public health departments and high school sporting events. By involvement in hospital and clinic quality committees, residents engage in scholarly activities that impact the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery in our local community.
Both quality improvement projects and scholarly activity are integral parts of our curriculum and are requirements for graduation from the program.
We hope to develop our residents into compassionate, well-trained family physicians who can contribute their skills to providing excellent medical care to rural populations. For more information on our Curriculum, please see the charts below:
As teaching physicians, we take our role as Faculty members very seriously. As medicine continues to change, we must keep current with quality measures, patient satisfaction trends and best practice recommendations. In doing so, we are able to provide our Residents with the skills they need to treat and care for their patients and the community.
